The mystery behind the masterpieces

The sensational discovery of more than a thousand works of art seized during the Nazi era has rocked the art world - and opened up plenty of questions.

The spectacular discovery of more than 1,400 works of art confiscated by Nazis during World War II has rocked the art world. Although German authorities seized the works from the son of an art dealer two years ago, the information was only recently made public.

But how did the works of art make it into a Munich apartment, and to whom do they rightfully belong? DW examines these and other questions.
